Creamy Taco Soup

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

This is a quick-and-easy recipe to make, and it's one of our favorite meals for cold winter nights.


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes

  • 1 can (10 ounces) chili without beans
  • 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
  • 2 cups sour cream, divided


  1. In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the beans, tomatoes, chili, cheese and seasonings. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Stir in 1 cup sour cream; heat through (do not boil). Garnish with remaining sour cream.

    Fantastic! Decided to make the soup the very night I read the recipe as we had 9" of snow on ground and it sounded delicious. I used what I had on hand, 1 lb ground meat, black beans instead of pintos, cheddar soup with milk, 8oz. Jack cheese and Chili with beans. It was so- o good. Thank you for the recipe, I will be making it often.

    The first time I made this recipe, I was looking for something different to take to the church potluck. It was a GREAT hit and I gave the recipe to at least 5 other women. My family loves it as well & it's SUPER EASY to make!! TWO thumbs up!!!!

    This was an easy recipe and tasty too. My family really liked it. I added a little cumin for extra flavor. I may even add a packet of taco seasoning to the beef next time.
